Key pillars of Microsoft UK Partner Pledge
1. Growing talent in technology
The first pillar of the Microsoft UK Partner Pledge is growing talent in technology. Essentially, this means we are committed to nurturing individuals with the mind-set, skills and capabilities that are required to enable them to thrive in the digital era. Advanced is already devoted to developing and mentoring technology talent and this pledge is aligned with our existing approach. We believe that by growing and supporting the next generation of IT professionals, we can create a sustainable future for our industry and ensure it remains at the forefront of global innovation.
2. Enhancing diversity and inclusion
The second pillar of the Microsoft UK Partner Pledge is enhancing diversity and inclusion. This is a critical step towards creating an environment that supports and nurtures technological innovators regardless of gender, race, sexual orientation or personal differences. At Advanced, we have always believed in creating an inclusive workplace that embraces differences, and we are proud to develop this further, alongside Microsoft. We believe that by creating an environment that is welcoming to all, we can foster an atmosphere of innovation and creativity where everyone feels valued.
3. Shaping a desirable world for our future
The third pillar of the Microsoft UK Partner Pledge is shaping a desirable world for our future. We believe that as a leading IT company, we have a social responsibility to ensure our actions contribute positively to society. We have made it our priority to examine the impact that our work has on the environment, the communities we serve, and beyond. For example, we have a robust CSR program that is committed to environmental sustainability, community development, and ethical business practices. By signing the Microsoft UK Partner Pledge, we are reaffirming our commitment to making a positive contribution towards society.
